International Women's Day
International Women's Day

A series of programmes celebrating the achievements of the fairer sex are been screened today on a digital television channel.

The Community Channel is dedicated to supporting the country's charities and will be marking International Women's Day.

The day will include the UK premiere of seven short cartoons narrated by Hollywood film stars Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Lopez.

The series, entitled "Face the Issue" deals with emotional and physical health issues common amongst many young women.

Another highlight is "Women In Black", a documentary following women who keep vigils for peace on the streets of cities around the world, from Japan to Israel and Argentina to Turkey.

The talents of emerging female film-makers shortlisted for awards at the Birds Eye View Film Festival are also due to be shown today.

The Community Channel is broadcast 24 hours a day, every day on Sky 585, Telewest 233 and NTL 14 and 511.
